FWIW, the reason I switched to Xfce was because gnome/fvwm2 integration
started degrading to be point of being no longer a productive environment.
When I made the decision to look elsewhere, one of the criteria was:
what's out there that's similar to fvwm? There are a few things I dearly
miss from my 20 years of fvwm, but I am otherwise very happy to be
rid of gnome.
